Programs and tutorials written by Stas Kolenikov
These are the programs for Stata
I have written on some or another occasion for my
ongoing research. Some of them were written only because I did not know that
there exists Stata command I needed :). One may want to use any of these
programs on his/her own risk. If you want some options added, or propose some
other modifications, contact me with e-mails below. Note
that I might have forgotten what I have written more than a year ago :(. Help
files are available for more serious programs; if there is none, you should
try to infer the syntax from the header of the program (syntax
statement), or contact me. I hope you would refer to me in some way when using
these programs if you think they have helped you.
There are no references to the program files in this page,
as I concentrate on writing programs, help files, and package files
for the net-aware Stata.
Install my programs from Stata by typing at Stata prompt:

The best pieces are also available at SSC - IDEAS.

My book on Stata
Actually, it is not too much of a book, but rather a 80 pages of lecture notes
for my seminars in applied econometrics with Stata 6. Downloadable!
Click here for the full text. It is to be published
soon as New Economic School preprint. Oh yes, it is in Russian only...
BTW, people from Russia may want to read my experience on
buying Stata in Russia.
Review of Stata
I am writing a review of Stata,
and I welcome your comments and suggestions before it is finally submitted.
Related to that is my collection of links to statalist
intended to represent the opinions of the users about Stata, as well as
clarifications regarding its capabilities by Stata people themselves.

other Stata resources,
